Born and raised in Okinawa, Japan, Angelina moved to Seattle with the express intention of studying Forensic Psychology and moving to the east coast to become part of the FBI. Needless to say, that didn't happen, and she got distracted with getting a degree from the School of Apparel Design and Development at Seattle Central instead.

Since then, she has worked in a variety of roles in the apparel industry including fashion design, accessories design, technical design, graphic design, development, project management, bridal, custom tailoring, leatherwork, and manufacturing. Her most recent role at Dutch design and development company ITC Accessories sees her wearing many hats as a designer, product developer, and project manager, also giving her experience working internationally and with brands such as Forever21 and Urban Outfitters.
